Great seafood. Lots of variety. Large bar area and can be very loud on weekends. Valet parking and attendants are very attentive (sorry). We stop here each year we are up.

Food is good at best, no real knockout dish or anything really flavorful. Good for families with a decent kid's menu. Better bar scene with live music although it get's crowded fast.

Similar to Chapin's Beach Bar but open more months, this spot on Taunton Ave (Dennis Northside) is a treasure in menu and beer choices (talented Black & Tan pouring). It's pricier than necessary, but food prep, quickness, and superior attentiveness mostly make up for that....More

Really great food, reasonable prices, good kids menu. The second night we ate on the patio/deck which was really nice (and a lot quieter than inside, actually). My kids loved the fish and chips. Service was good. We'd definitely return.
